Traveling Yashica (& other cameras)

The Traveling Yashica: Inge van Leipsig, Rotterdam, The Netherlands

October 28, 2013

When I read about the project, I knew instantly I wanted to join it. I have shot with point and shoot cameras before, but never liked them. Some people on Twitter convinced me this was different, and I had to see for myself.

The camera was sent to me from England, and when it arrived the weather in the Netherlands was very bad. On a very stormy day I took the camera to the beach, loaded it with black and white film and gave it a go. And it didn’t disappoint at all! It was quick, quiet and the lens turned out to be really sharp. I instantly loved the results when I saw them after developing my roll.

Are there downsides to this camera? To be honest, there is one: it is quite expensive to buy one. But that is the only downside I can come up with. It just is a great little camera and I had fun playing around with it. I hope the others that participate in the project do as well!

Cheers, Inge
